On today’s This Morning, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield welcomed a number of guests onto the show via video link from their own homes. Money-Saving expert Martin Lewis and First Dates star Fred Siriex were just two of the big names joining the ITV show as well as TV chef James Martin. And it was during a segment with James that Holly couldn’t resist a tongue-in-cheek joke.
James joined Holly and Phil from his own back garden as he conjured up a treat for viewers.
Today, James was manning the barbecue and ran This Morning viewers through the steps to cooking the perfect mackerel dish.
However, Holly and Phil were more interested in his garden surroundings and requested a tour around.
The camera panned into James’ greenhouse where he keeps his fruit and vegetables.
Viewers at home quickly picked up on it, however, and took to social media to share their thoughts and surprise at the quip.
One fan commented on Twitter: “Now a melon joke! God I love @hollywills #ThisMorning.”
A second added: “@hollywills cheeky, you’ve spent too much time with @lemontwittor #ThisMorning.”
While a third contributed: “Holly’s ‘Melons’ comment almost got ignored but I thought it was hilarious. Very quick Holly!! #HollyWilloughby #ThisMorning.”
And a fourth just simply weighed in: “#thismorning melons.”
This Morning continues weekdays at 10am on ITV.
